LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas aims for its first road win this season when the Longhorns face
The two teams have identical records, but the Red Raiders (2-3, 4-4) have won one game away from Lubbock — after losing two earlier this season. They beat TCU last week in Fort Worth on a field goal in the second overtime.
"So how good you feel when you're at home, that's the same feeling that we have to take when we're on the road, even though it's a different atmosphere."

"I think it scared him," the fourth-year coach said. "He landed right on it. I'm sure there was some pain, but he sounds like he will be able to practice almost a full week so that should help."
TCU kept Mahomes contained inside the pocket for most of the game, holding him to a season-low 206 yards passing. The team had a season-low 345 total yards and was held to its fewest points since a 20-10 win over the Horned Frogs in 2013.
"That's what's got to be critical for us, not to let him outside," Strong said.
